If you were wondering what all the sirens were about early this morning in the Graham area, it was a full response by Graham Fire and Rescue with support from Central Pierce Fire and Rescue to a report of smoke at an assisted living facility.

The call came in about 2 a.m. from Clare Bridge of Puyallup  at 8811  176th Street East, according to Graham Fire Chief Jay Espinosa.

There was no fire, he said. Firefighters discovered a furnace motor had shorted out.
